I love a simple federal style buffet...

I recently picked up this sweet 1940's buffet.

I love its simple feminine lines, bow front and "usefulness without bulk".

I wanted to keep the finish simple, to compliment its design, so I chose antique white and opted for minimal distressing. Gorgeous in your dining room and it would make a beautiful media console (the left side looks like drawers, but is actually a cabinet door!) or entry piece. I can also picture large baskets or maybe even fruit crates underneath for added storage...

Dimensions: 68"W x 23"D x 37.5"H. Priced at $450 and available now.

Additionally, for those who have inquired, my reclaimed wood flags are still available in two sizes via special order. Large (shown) is 50"W x 27"H and priced at $120. The small is 36"W x 20"H and priced at $95. They arrive ready to hang and can be used inside or out.

french country style buffet...

I originally purchased this buffet for my own personal use. I painted an identical piece about a year ago and when it was sold I wished I had kept it. It took nearly a year to find another. Unfortunately, at 72" long, when I finally placed it on the smaller wall I had picked as its new home, it was just a little too large. Thus it is now available...

I just LOVE the detailing! This lovely piece is solid wood and has been finished in Annie Sloan's Old White. The drawers are dovetailed and slide smoothly. The original hardware has been painted black and is a gorgeous contrast. With nine drawers, there is plenty of storage space in this beauty. These pieces are so difficult to locate with these fabulous legs!

A gorgeous statement piece for your dining room, entry, as a media console, or even in a bedroom!

Dimensions: 72"W x 32"H x 19"D. Priced at $550.00

Photo upload issues...

 
Happy Monday!
 
I have spent the last week trying to solve photo upload issues on my blog...
 
SO FRUSTRATING! I wonder if anybody else is having the same issue?  I try to upload photos from my computer and the page pops up, but there are no photos to select...
 
Going to try to have it resolved as soon as possible.
 
In the meantime, have a beautiful week!

Gorgeous antique pantry cabinet...

I love red. Not only around the holidays, but everyday...
So when it was time to re-imagine this fabulous pantry cabinet, I took a little hint from its past...
This cabinet had been painted MANY times during its life. White, brown, cream...
FIRE ENGINE red...
Again, I love red and put simply, it is a color that makes me happy. I am just not a big fan of "fire engine red". Unless of course, the color is on an actual fire engine or holiday decorations...

I love the little details on the cabinet too; crown moulding at the top, the keyhole (the key to which, I am certain, was lost long ago) and the simple single drawer at the bottom that we gave vintage style glass pulls to dress it up, just a little...
We custom mixed a deep, rich, red for this piece and then heavily distressed it to reveal the generations of paint beneath. The exterior was then finished with a coat of wax. We decided on Annie Sloan's Old Ochre for the interior to warm it up. After some light distressing and wax, it was PERFECT!
The chicken wire on the doors was an afterthought. Sadly, one original glass pane was broken.

In fact, I can't believe any of them survived as long as they did. I looked into replacing the pane of glass, but decided on chicken wire because I love the rustic feel.
This beauty is ready to display all of your lovelies and is available now at our retail space.
SOLD!
